The Law Center created and launched the Office of Equity, Inclusion & Title IX (OEI) to champion community-wide equity, inclusion, and diversity initiatives.
OEI collaborates with all members of the Law Center community (faculty, staff, students, and alumni) to create, support, and maintain a diverse and inclusive law school environment. We work strategically to develop and support equity and inclusion efforts through community programming, educational and training programs, student advocacy, and advisory and consultancy services.
PROGRAMMING AND SUPPORT
OEI provides institutional advisory and consulting services as well as individual and group-level support to examine and explore some of the complex diversity, equity, and inclusion issues facing Southern University Law Center, legal academia, and the nation.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT STATEMENT
Southern University Law Center (SULC) has a responsibility to acknowledge, honor, and affirm Indigenous culture, history, and experiences. SULC is a community of higher learning and a part of the Baton Rouge land mass which was built upon the traditional, and ancestral lands of Indigenous peoples. Featured at the bluffs (known historically as Scots Bluff) on the BR land mass is a commemorative sculpture that recognizes how Baton Rouge got the name of “Red Stick”, which was the location of the boundary for the hunting grounds of the Houma Indian Tribe and the Bayougoula Indian Tribe. SULC also recognizes other native communities native to this region including the Caddo Adai Indians of Louisiana, Biloxi Chitimacha Confederation, Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana, Choctaw Nation, Coushatta Tribe, FourWinds Cherokee Tribe, Muscogee (Creek), Point au Chien Tribe, TunicaBiloxi Tribe, United Houma Nation, and others whose memories may have been erased by violence, displacement, migration, and settlement. As a University, we thank them for their strength and resilience as stewards of this land and are committed to creating and maintaining a living and learning environment that embraces individual difference, including the Indigenous peoples of our region.
